Going Home for the Holigays

With the holiday season fast approaching, there is a lot to stress about such as family, friends, money and not feeling accepted.

Everyone needs resources to make the holidays a little easier. The Doyle Center hosted a night on Wednesday, Nov. 17, full of games, music and food, a night for people to escape the stress for a little bit.

I was able to hang out with some great people at the Doyle Center for a couple hours. We played Scrabble, ate homemade mac and cheese, listened to music and just talked and got to know one another.

Being able to talk and make new friends before the chaos of the holidays was a great stress reliever. Just having a couple of hours where I didn’t have to worry about homework, my job or even the approaching end of my degree was nice. I was able to just get to know some new people and chill with some great people on campus.

The holiday season can be stressful, no matter if you’re in school or if you have other responsibilities. Being able to find a little peace and quiet is a great way to focus on one’s mental health. Look for the things that bring joy into the busy-ness and take a deep breath.

Happy Holidays!
